Mental Health Services: 
Solutions Counseling

We want all of our students to be healthy and ready to learn, and we recognize that strong mental health and wellness play a vital role in a student's growth and success. Students who are struggling with stress, anxiety or other concerns cannot focus on school work. That's why VanGorden Elementary School partners with Solutions Community Counseling to help increase student access to high quality and affordable mental healthcare. 

The partnership is made possible by the district's partnership with MindPeace, a non-profit that serves as a catalyst for connecting its network of professional mental health providers with schools. After a rigorous needs assessment and interview process, we identified Solutions Community Counseling as our partner.

My name is Rachael Barrow and I'm a Child and Adolescent Supervisor as well as a Clinical Mental Health Therapist. 

I've been with Solutions for almost 4 years now. I started with school-based services and now do administrative and clinical supervisions as well as therapy. Before getting into the mental health field, I was a teacher for about 15 years. I have a passion for kids and seeing them succeed. I enjoy meeting them where they're at and watching them grow into confident and capable members of society.
